developed a citywide water supply system. sullivan: in 1630, boston was basically three mountains, there were very steep hills. waste would run down quickly and dump into the harbor. and the tide would carry most of it away. well, this worked well for a while. the problem was, as boston wanted to expand, it started filling in the mudflats. the water could come rushing down the hill, it would hit the flat area and slow down. at high tide, it couldn't get out at all. it got so bad that the city took over, 'cause the city has a responsibility to protect its citizens. boston built the first modern sewer system in the united states. ours was completed between 1877 and 1884. with this wonderful new sewer system, we were taking our filth and moving it out to the ocean. of course, all of this was untreated. in the 1960s, we were still pumping all of our sewage out to moon island, untreated. we would get swimmers here, never knowing, in the middle of summer, why you would have a cold. well, we were swimming in diluted sewage. melosi: the major way to deal with pollution, at least until ear

york, new jersey, philadelphia. boston now seeing the snow. one of the hardest-hit areas from sandy was long island, staten island and then down the jersey shore, they are getting hit again by not just the strong winds, but heavy snow on top of what they've seen from sandy. here's more on that story. >> reporter: hey, doug. this is something that we've ever seen before. none of us at the weather channel can remember a snowfall nine days after a hurricane hits an area. that's what's happening here in point pleasant, new jersey. one of the beaches ravaged by sandy a week ago monday. what i'm walking up here is not a big pile of snow that you would see in the winter. this is sand. now, this is a temporary dune they've built since yesterday. they took all the sand that sandy took inland, six, seven blocks inland and they trucked it out here. it left about three to four feet of sand left on ocean avenue. so they trucked out the sand and started building the dune yesterday ahead of this nor'easter. some areas in krtconnecticut ha had six to eight inches of snow. the weekend looks sunny an

our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
temperatures closely because notice how cold it is up there in albany, hartford and boston. in any snow does fall, it probably wouldn't accumulate on the pavement. still hovering around 40. so whatever falls should melt throughout the morning and especially during the afternoon. here's the winter radar. this is our little weak storm. the white shows you where the snow is. the pink is the mix. and then where we show you the green, that's where the rain is. washington, d.c., starting heavier echoes. this is probably hitting the ground, maybe a little sleet mixed in, too, western maryland. as this all translates this afternoon right over the top of the philadelphia to new york city area, that's where we could see minor accumulations. we're not talking a lot. the cities themselves, probably the roads will be fine, on the cars and the grass, maybe an inch or two. north and west of philadelphia, pennsylvania, northwest jersey could get from two to three inches. southern new england could pick up an inch or two and that could even accumulate on the roads. the airports could have minor issues as tha

the economy? carl cameron with the news live in boston this afternoon. governor romney's campaign made decisions that our watchers indicate cost him. >>carl: one tinge he was particularly deficient in was latino vote. when george w. bush won in 2000 he was north 40 percent and mitt romney was down 27 percent. there are questions whether early in the summer when the obama campaign unleashed attack ads on romney's business career whether he responded adequately. some suggested that $30 million worth of positive ads could have neutralized that. he did not talk about bipartisanship in the language you normally hear at the end of a campaign particularly until after the convention. normally the convention is the point where the big tent is open and people try to bring in independents and moderates but it was conservative convention. there was a good example last night of the bipartisan out outreach. >> the nation is in a critical point. a time like this we cannot risk partisan bickering. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. we citizens have to rise to the occas
